We all know that eating healthy and being active is the best way to a healthy lifestyle for our kiddos. But sometimes it’s good to know what vitamins, safe medicines and other alternatives we can give them when all else fails.
Vitamins and Minerals
- Children’s Multivitamin – We use Child Life: Multi Vitamin & Mineral. I wanted something that had everything our kids needed, like Vitamin C, D12, Calcium etc. Now we all know vitamins don’t taste good and that’s why they make then in gummies. I prefer this over the gummies because gummy vitamins can contain large amounts of sugar. For use, you put a teaspoon in your child’s drink (we do it in our morning smoothie, that way the taste isn’t too strong).

- Children’s Emergen-C Kidz Packets – We love our Emergen-C packets. Now Sylar doesn’t use this too often, but that’s because he already takes a daily multivitamin that already contains a lot of the vitamins an Emergen-C packet contains. If your child is 4 years old+, they can use this as their daily multivitamin, taking one packet a day. It has lots of antioxidants, B vitamins, and electrolytes. Sylar will drink a packet in water if he is starting to come down with a cold.
